The new colts.com is SLICK!!!/Questions and problems (merge)

Recommended Posts

As of this morning, I get two warnings.

- request a reset of your password

- make sure you have the most updated version of your browser. Chrome and Firefox work properly.

 

But, I'm still logged in, I can 'react' to posts, and I'm sending this, without an issue.

I use Chrome, so all should be working properly, right?

I'm ignoring the warnings.....

Yes you can ignore.

Some people who haven't accessed their accounts in a couple of years are having trouble logging in.  Could be forgotten password but, I wanted them to know how to address the problem

 

Other people aren't aware we're having browser compatibility issues don't know what to do.  I wanted them to know they should upgrade/try another browser

 

The bug with not being able to like posts, is that for any post anywhere on the site or just on status updates?

Hi Nadine,

No, I CAN react to posts. Everything works normally. That's why was confused by, and am ignoring the warnings.

Actually, I misread the 'lost access to account' warning. Thought it was personal, but appears to be global.

Is anyone else having trouble seeing photographs/images on the new Colts.com site?  I've tried Chrome, Chrome incognito mode, and Firefox, but cannot see any images, just little icons. If I go to Photos, I don't see anything in the galleries, just blank white sections.

Nope.  It may be the firewall at my office...not that I get on there while I'm supposed to be working :)

Thanks for letting me know.  I've forwarded your issue.  I know they continue to work on the site.

There are no issues for me using either-

 

Firefox Quantum 60.0.2 (64 bit)

Chrome 67.0.3396.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)

 

I have no issues on Colts.com with either of these two browsers on a Dell Inspiron, Intel 8th gen core i7, Windows 10.

 

Sorry folks are having issues.  Note: my web browsers are constantly being updated recently. Not sure why...


Hints that may help (Firefox)-

But when viewing in Safari, it appears to be a mess.

You can say that again PGT. Safari is recommended for all MAC computers which is what I own & I'm kind of bummed out that I can't use that particular web browser to view the forum right now.

 

Not all the site's features run smoothly in Safari at all. I suppose I could check my updates feature, but the last time I did that, I have to remember my You Tube password & it messed up/altered recorded items on my computer. So naturally, I don't wanna get burned again. Right now, I'm using Firefox.

I was using IE11 and have used IE for years in here but this Site would not to allow me to Post using it around 3 weeks ago. Just out of the blue! I could Log in but couldn't Post or Log back out LOL. I then downloaded Chrome, since I done that I have had 0 problem with this Site or any Site. I would recommend everyone on here to download Chrome if they are having any problems in here. It only takes 2 or 3 minutes.

Thanks for your help CBE. I appreciate it. I'll look into it. I might even contact Apple personnel later this week to confirm compatabilty usage etc. I tried downloading Chrome once & it didn't go well. Translation: It slowed everything down & I had to throw it away/dump it in the trash.

 

Again, I'm grateful for your assistance brother. Much obliged. :hat:

I might be impressed if i did'nt have to create a new password every single time i'v visited i'm in the twenties now every since i got this new computer signing in here has become a problem & its only on this site the issue exists ;

Sorry, I missed this post.  Are you using your username or email address to log in.  Just wondering if the characters in your username are the problem.  Try signing in with your email address.  If that doesn't solve the issue, let me know what browser and version you are using

Yes, that's what worries me too. I've used this version of Safari for so long for keeping track of 3 essential passwords that I doubt I could even remember what they are anymore. What makes it especially difficult is capitalization issues & often you only get like 4-5 chances before you get locked out & must create a whole new password altogether. Oh happy joy. Just Kidding!

 

Anyway, thanks for your reply Nadine. I'm still mulling over what to do next. It just bothers me that everything is compatible with PC & hardly anybody has a smooth transition for MACs or Apple computers. It drives me nuts. I go through this mess everytime the forum updates. Sigh...

HTH

Good info here for PCs not MACs though, which validates what I said earlier. With MACs, you're on your own. The irony here is that APPLE is a better machine than IBM or Microsoft etc & yet few IT personnel are well versed on MAC updates. I always find that funny. Life goes on...Not a knock on CBFL who was giving vital assistance. I know that.

I respect all the moderators & IT staff responsible for this new launch BTW. I just moan & groan a lot when everything is just where I like it & then bam....Somebody in their infinite wisdom says let's throw a wrench in the works for giggles just because. Only Kidding!

 

Yeah, I know. This was probably done to improve access to the forum on cell phones. I get it even though I don't own a iPhone, I vent, make jokes, swear, & eventually accept that change is inevitable. LOL!

I just checked I am still using El Capitan.  I haven't upgraded to High Sierra yet.

That's probably my problem. I need to do the upgrade. First, I gotta see if I can remember all my saved passwords yet in this version. Man, I dread this...You lose all your saved passwords from the previous version. Yeah, I know you're supposed to write that stuff down, but honestly, nobody does. Bank login, Colts login, etc. etc.

Hi, we had this conversation here: http://forums.colts.com/topic/58420-the-new-coltscom-is-slick/

 

My understanding is that the new colts.com only works with the 2 latest versions of any browser.

 

Try upgrading your browser and let me know if that does the trick

That's probably good advice. First, I need to find that Apple Care phone number in my desk drawer.

I'm on a mac right now. I haven't had a problem with safari, firefox, or chrome but, I keep all of them updated.

There is a way to find passwords in your key chain.  At least in High Sierra there is.  I had to do that recently, I cannot remember what password I was looking for but, I googled how to do it and it worked.

I hear you.  With our old platform, we evolved with several versions of several browsers.  But, what we have right now is a brand new platform and it focused on the most recent versions of the browsers.  That's why older browsers now have trouble.

I have an iPhone 7 (128 GB) and iPad Air2 64 GB, and they are quite connected to each other. I do have a Dell PC laptop, but iTunes and iCloud are installed and has connectivity to the phone and tablet.  But I use Chrome and Firefox for iOS on my Apple devices, not just the laptop.  I rarely use Safari for some reason.

Thanks Nadine & CBFL for your kind & helpful feedback on my behalf. I downloaded an update last night for my Safari browser which took 10-15 minutes to fix some glitches & allow me to use my preferred browser again. 

 

I notice a lingering problem on the forum though. Whenever I'm viewing Status Updates & say somebody likes something I commented on or posted. When I click on see who liked what you did, my cursor spins forever & I end up closing my forum page & coming back without seeing who reacted to what I said or did. And even if the info is eventually revealed, it takes an eternity to reach that point on my screen. Very frustrating.

Hey I'm noticing that on desktop the red notification bars are floating up & to the right on the page. I tinkered around with it, and if you want to let the web team know, removing "position:fixed;" from the CSS below takes care of the issue.

 

.cAnnouncementsFloat {

position: fixed;

margin: 0px;

width: 100%;

top: 0px;

}

@Nadine is there a way to change the way I see text thru my profile?  the text is a real light blue and thin font, kind of hard to read.  It's fine on my mobile, but on a desk top, its a PITA.

On Chrome, the Posts are back to normal like they were before the new format came out. They are not in Bold no more. You can even see the i's as i's not l's. What is in light blue are the titles of each topic and the names who are logged in. That is tough on the eyes - it's a thin font and bright. I just dimmed my brightness on my laptop and it's all good.

Where did the fanzone go? I just got a new phone and wanted a clean Colts wallpaper but couldn't find them on the new site. On the old site they were located under fanzone and had both desktop and mobile wallpaper sub-links. Those wallpapers are sick and I would really like to see them make a return. Other than that, I like the new "NFL.com-like" web design. It seems a lot more streamlined and that's when niche features (like wallpapers) get left behind.

    • I can't beat PT's list but I've been to some.    Baseball Mets -- many times since 1992; one year I went to over 20 games, but I go to one or two a year now.   Spring Training-- Mets, in southern Florida   I have also been to a few Yankees games but it has been a while.   Minor league baseball: Mets in Binghamton, NY in 1992   NFL -- Vikings in MN, DC, Atlanta in last 3 years; Giants, at least one game a year since 2014; Jets, about 7 games since 1996   NBA basketball -- about 3 or 4 Knicks games   Hockey -- 1 game (I am not a hockey fan)   College Basketball -- in college and later at Madison Square Garden (saw Indiana, Temple, and some other teams)   Tennis -- I used to go to the US Open but it has been a while since I was last there.      I'd like to attend a round of a golf tournament.
    • I think you're reading WAY too much into this.     This is only the first projection of the first round by one guy.     We've run maybe a 1/2 mile out of a marathon.      And I didn't even list all 32 guys.      And it's not even clear we would take a DE with our first round pick.    We might take a DT.    I don't know which.    But as long as it's one of them,  I'm good with this.   I think the chances of the Colts taking a OT or a WR in the first round are very small.    An OT would make FOUR lineman taken in the first round.     I don't see that happening.   And as I've written about extensively now,  even yesterday in another thread,   there is almost no value in a first round WR.   Six of the last 7 drafts,  the vast majority of WR's taken in the first round are mostly below average to busts.    This is league-wide,  not just a Colts thing.   The only draft that is the exception is the 2014 draft with Beckham for starters.   It's an eye popping first round.     All the rest of the drafts, are somewhere between Meh on the high side,  to bust on the low side.   Don't see us going offense in the first round.    And if I had my wish, we wouldn't go offense until Day 3.    But, I'm putting the cart before the horse....     All I'm saying is that's it's very early in the process...     this is just a conversation starter...    
    • This guy looks good.  
    • you kind sir, seem to be in the minority of what the majority of Lions fans are saying, and what a lot of Colts fans are thinking and seeing here.....move along.
    • I am going to say all three. The first thing any team has to do is win and take care of their own division.
